Action Area Name


One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections.


Establishment of self-organized teams to foster a culture of trust and learning


A live pilot developed within three months thanks to a human-centered real-life scenario


How Human-Centered Design supports innovation in the biggest reinsurance company in the world


Establishment of self-organized teams to foster a culture of trust and learning

Our Approach

We were approached to develop a culture of continuous learning among management and employees within the IT department of Dr Oetker.
Starting with an immersion into the working modus of Dr Oetker, in which we identified key points of intervention that could be addressed through the implementation of a series of experiments, we followed the agile approach and had our focus on communication, trust and transparency.
We had previously worked on a common understanding of the main concepts and methods, and a set of boundaries that gave the team a lot of freedom for their experiments, and yet enabled them to act in accordance within Dr Oetker key values.
Applying a structured process, we facilitated the concept and implementation of six experiments that have successfully contributed to solve the tensions identified during the immersion phase.

The Result

A blueprint for learning from failures and solving the fear of conflicts through innovative experiments was developed. A new culture of fostering responsibility and trust is now being spread by the team, which became a multiplier of that validated process.
As a further result, they are now themselves able to shape other colleagues and practices into this mindset, hence increasing the effectiveness of the program and depending as little as possible on our external consultancy.

Johnson & Johnson


A live pilot developed within three months thanks to a human-centered real-life scenario

Our Approach

Johnson & Johnson fosters innovation within the organization and shows that it's possible to bring projects to pilot level within three months.
After field research in hospitals and a strategy workshop with the executive board, J2C was able to make a value proposition to J&J Medical Devices.

The Result

Within a three-month agile project, a prototype was developed to support J&J at hospitals.
A new department called J&J MD Evolution was initiated that is today still accompanied by J2C.
Next up are two more agile projects such as an internal incubator program, establishment of an idea platform, and an educational program for entrepreneurial activities.


How Human-Centered Design supports innovation in the biggest reinsurance company in the world

Our Approach

Munich Re asked us to develop a transformation strategy for its internal corporate structure, with the aim of becoming more innovative. In order to enable this, many work structures had to be modified to make room for creativity and the courage to pursue new approaches. Our challenge was to understand the individual needs of Munich Re in their context in order to establish an innovation landscape that would fit their needs. From then on we supported the process of assisting Munich Re in becoming an entrepreneurial organization.

The Result

We've trained +700 participants, held +20 Basic Design Thinking Workshops, done ten Moderator Trainings, experienced nine Startups Expeditions - all of this in eight different countries.
The continuous learning and experimenting with new ways of working can be time consuming and challenges daily routines. The basis of all success is the willingness of all employees – from board down – to take on the challenge of innovation at its most serious level and step out of the comfort zone. Munich Re has shown a great amount of willingness to do so.
